No manual work at all! Start controlling your IT infrastructure effectively with Puppet 5.0
Managing your application's infrastructure requires constant updates and security for infrastructure reliability. Automation provides faster deployments and fewer failures, improves security, and reduces costs for your organization. Puppet is an ideal tool for automating IT infrastructure in your organization and this course will show you how.
This course will give you a hands-on tutorial with the Puppet 5 platform and teaches you to manage your IT infrastructure. You will build a custom software installation and configuration to match your application infrastructure, and explore the latest features of Puppet 5 by executing, testing, and deploying Puppet across your systems. Also, you'll develop modules for Puppet while learning to avoid common errors and overcome everyday challenges.
By the end of this course, you'll be ready to use Puppet in your own systems and ensure all of your servers comply with the desired configuration.
